Developers across the nation are constructing or substantially rehabilitating Multifamily High Rise (MFHR) buildings to ENERGY STAR Guidelines, improving building quality and occupant comfort while lowering energy demand and reducing air pollution. Become an ENERGY STAR MFHR Developer Partner and demonstrate your commitment to energy-efficient, quality buildings.
For units in multifamily mid and high rise buildings to earn the ENERGY STAR, a new or substantially rehabilitated mid or high rise multifamily building must be designed to be at least 15% more energy efficient than a building built to meet code requirements. Units can earn the ENERGY STAR using either the Performance or Prescriptive Path.
Learn more about which projects are eligible for the Multifamily High Rise Program.
Follow these steps to certify multifamily units through the ENERGY STAR Multifamily High Rise Program.
A number of tools and resources including the Simulation Guidelines and Testing & Verification Protocols are available to help program participants meet the MFHR program requirements through both paths.
